Relates to our discussion on standards. Glenn is not at all provencial:

A quote from his essay:

"Esoterica: It always surprises me when beginning artists do not make
a rugged effort to search out their masters. Fear of "bothering" and
shaky feelings of intimidation may be a couple of the reasons. Most
masters I've known have been more than generous with their time and
encouragement. Daily, I thank them for being there. I have, however,
never known one who didn't try to keep his earnings through the
following night. "
